I tried 5 ultra dark tans and my favourite one was only €16

Bronzed and beautiful!

Okay, so none of us can deny the fact that a nice lick of tan makes everything better.

Seriously, I always feel flawless when I have a bronzed glow.

And for someone who doesn't naturally tan (not fair), I simply swear by fake tan.

One thing I have noticed this year is that tan brands are all releasing 'extra dark' shades.

And I am HERE FOR IT.

I'm that basic bitch who wants to be as tanned as humanly possible, so these extra dark options are unreal.

I have tried out pretty much every tan I can get my pale little hands on, and these are my faves:

5. Bellamianta Self Tanning Mousse Ultra Dark €22.95 .

This bad boy has everything you love about the original Bellamianta tan mousse, just darker! This easy to use self-tanning mousse gives you a gorgeous deep olive colour. The formula is bursting with natural extracts perfect for all skin types, especially dry skin in need of a bit of attention (guilty).

4. Cocoa Brown Ultra Dark 1 Hour Tan €9.95. 

This baby is Cocoa Brown's deepest, darkest shade yet! It's as convenient to use as the original Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan, but darker than ever. This Cocoa Brown Tan in Ultra Dark simply glides on with an instant colour and develops into a rich and deep tan that lasts for up to 7 days in just one hour. HANDY.

 

 

3. St Tropez Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse €44.95 .

You can kind of pick and choose your darkness level with this, which is amazing. Simply apply and rinse off after 4 hours for a dark tan or after 8 hours for an intense but natural-looking, extra dark tan that lasts for days. Would it be weird to bathe in it?

2. bBold Xtra Dark Self Tan Mousse €17.

Oddly, my favourite thing about this tan was its moisturising aspect. Sure, it gives you an even, natural-looking tan, but you feel so soft and ;lovely after using it. Streak-free and effortless to apply, this lightweight formula smooths onto the skin for a healthy glowing finish that lasts for up to seven days.

WINNER ALERT:

1.Bondi Sands Tan Foam Ultra Dark €16 . 

To be perfectly honest, I'd use this even if it was useless, purely because it smells like coconuts. Heaven. Thankfully though, it works as good as it smells. This fabulous lightweight self-tanning foam will develop so well, people will think you've been on holiday. And it's only 16 quid. Perfecto.
